who has or is taking SDZ-VENLAFAXINE XR?

My dr just put me on SDZ-VENLAFAXINE XR, and it makes me feel tired and blah. I was just wondering if anyone has had any problems with it, or just wanna talk about it :) Thanks

I'm taking that. It's a SNRI, which is usually not a go-to for most doctors. SSRIs are usually the first to be prescribed because of their wide success rate, but for many, this doesn't touch their mood disorder at all (mood disorder meaning depression, anxiety, bipolar, etc.) or the side effects are worse than the symptoms they are treating. I'd been all over the SSRI and MAOI spectrum before they put me on Venlafaxine XR. I had to switch to taking them at night, because the effects shortly after taking them were a bit too much (I felt like I was on autopilot) for me during waking hours. However, the effects I get after I wake up are exactly what I needed. Make sure to discuss with your prescriber about all of your symptoms, and try to be patient with your medication(s). Some of them take some time for your system to get used to.
